3 Songs: On Repeat

Vertical Scratchers – “Memory Shards” (The new project from John Schmersal of Brainiac, Enon, and Crooks on Tape and Christian Beaulieu (ex-Triclops!/Anywhere) released their debut album, Daughter Of Everything this week via Merge Records.  Gone are the keyboards of the duo’s prior individual projects and in their place are two-minute bursts of unbridled punk energy with falsetto vocals and an off-kilter 60’s pop sensibility that feels raw and entirely new and different.  The album also features a special guest vocal from fellow Daytonian Robert Pollard.)

Canon Logic – “IBOK” (The Brooklyn based band released their long-awaited sophomore album, WYLD this week.  Their energetic keyboard-heavy indie-pop anthems are led by the crystalline vocals of Tim Kiely and outfitted with sparkling guitars, layers of soaring vocal melodies and infectious World Music-inspired rhythms for an exciting return.)  

She Sir – "Condensedindents" (The Austin based indie rock quartet led by Russell Karloff released their highly-anticipated debut album, Go Guitars this week via Shelflife Records.  Their shimmering dream-pop sound is highlighted by jangly 60’s guitars and hazy, reverb rich vocals melodies that incorporate everything from Fleetwood Mac’s folk to catchy 80’s pop for a debut well worth the wait.)
